Area Health Education Centers (AHEC)
A partnership coordinated by Augusta University, the Georgia Statewide AHEC Network is a complex, multi-disciplinary effort which responds to the problems of health professionals supply and distribution in rural and underserved areas of the state.
Since 1984, the Georgia Statewide AHEC Network has represented a growing partnership of health providers, health professions students, educators, state agencies, and communities joined together with a commitment to resolve these problems through educational support to health professionals in the field, both as students and as practitioners.
